Wonderful tour with Aliki
Oct. 2020
So glad I was able to get a tour with Aliki! My son and I loved our walking tour of Chania and sharing a cold coffee to begin! Aliki completely tailored our time to what we wanted to see and accomplish. She has a great disposition and knows everyone in town, it seems! We learned a lot and took some beautiful pictures of the town. I recommend anyone take this tour- a local always knows the best places.

We first met Roussos when we booked for a 3 hour walking tour through the old town of Chania. That tour was outstanding! It covered everything we wanted to learn about the history and the old town. It was very hot and Roussos ensured we had plenty of drinks and kept to as much shade as possible.
His passion for Crete was catching and we saw everything from a “local” perspective. Excellent.
Based on that great experience we booked Roussos again for a full day the following day. We drove to the mountains visiting villages along the way, an old monastery and ended up enjoying an amazing typical Crete lunch, cooked over a wood fire. We finished off by visiting the oldest olive tree. Wow, it was a magical day.
We cannot speak highly enough of our experience with Roussos, he is absolutely amazing and we would recommend him and Alma de Creta to anyone wanting to experience the real Crete.
Thanks Roussos for making our holiday very special.

On our short stay in Chania we wanted to understand and explore the history of the “old town”. Our guide, Roussos, met us at the museum and for the next 3 hours we walked and talked. Roussos is a local so knew all the history along with the best places to stop and try the local coffee and we even had a very tasty sweet pastry...local of course...
This tour is an experience not to be missed....we learnt all about the different periods from the Minoan to the Byzantine and the Venetian..with others in between. Chania has an amazing history and Roussos was excellent. He also ensured we were comfortable as it was very hot, so we did most of our walking in the shade with frequent stops for drinks etc.
Highly recommend this tour and Roussos.
We were so impressed we hired Roussos for a private full day tour to the villages in the mountains the following day.
